MTI ShowSpace - A FREE Resource to Help You Put on a Show

mtishowspacelogo_final4web_623091Musicals are a collaborative experience and MTI’s role has always been to connect with and encourage the people presenting theatre. The launch of MTI ShowSpace lets us use our years of experience cultivating relationships with theatres and arts organizations from around the world to build an online community that’s specific to the practice of putting on a show. When people connect and information begins to flow, new ideas are generated, innovations take place, and everyone benefits.  This is the promise of MTI ShowSpace.

We hope you take advantage of this FREE resource by joining the conversation and letting your colleagues from around the world help make your next show, your best show.

Here’s just a sample of what’s making people click on MTI ShowSpace:

Go Behind-the-Scenes with Jason Robert Brown
Inside the MTI Vault, we’ve posted a series of exclusive interviews with Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown (SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD, THE LAST FIVE YEARS, PARADE, 13).  Jason sits down with our friend Ken Kleiber to share his thoughts on the creative process and how he brought both PARADE and 13 to life.  This is a unique chance to go behind-the-scenes with a truly engaging MTI author who has been hailed as “one of Broadway's smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

Find and Share Sets, Props and Costumes
Currently, there are 300+ set pieces, costumes and props for over 75 MTI shows - all available to rent or swap in our online marketplace, Community Rentals.

Whether you’re looking to procure the magic mirror in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST or get your hands on some colorful costumes for THE MUSIC MAN, Community Rentals has got something for every theatre or organization.

Turn Up the Dial on MTI Radio
We’ve got over 1,000 songs from your favorite MTI shows available anytime on our new, free radio player.  Simply click on MTI Radio and let the tunes begin.

Search and Post Jobs in the Arts
In these tough economic times, theatre people need to stick together.  Our Jobs & Services board lets you advertise your skills and also search for jobs that target theatre professionals, administrators and performers all over the country.

Network and Share Advice, Tips and Success Stories
Our dynamic Forums let you shine as industry leaders, providing a space to lend your advice and experience to smaller or younger programs.  For example…Directors are exchanging ideas about creating affordable sets for “Guys and Dolls”, producers are recommending shows suitable for a mostly-female cast, actors are suggesting vocal warm-up techniques for auditions, and a childrens' theatre is receiving fundraising tips.

There's plenty to explore on MTI ShowSpace and we look forward to seeing you online as we continue to grow our virtual theatre community.
